Although it looked as delicious as we had imagined, our error was not reserving...sadly it was packed, however we wanted to thank the charming waitress who took the time to suggest to us several others good spot to eat and we were totally chuffed with her recommendation. Based on how friendly and helpful she was we can only endorse all... More

Gartine is an old French word for garden. The owners grow their own produce on a patch of ground just outside the city, and much of it is served in the café - think, fresh and seasonal; lovely flavours, great quality produce, and imaginative dishes. A genteel kind of atmosphere, with a huge chandelier and a scattering of Frenchified antiques.... More

We have had the classic high tea shortly before we leave Amsterdam in the early afternoon and it was incredible! It's basically a tea of your choice (that they refill for you for free) and a selection of salted pastries made with pickings from onsite kitchen garden! Then comes the sweet pastries plate with cheesecakes, muffins, chocolate... All home made... More

We were lucky to have breakfast here on saturday, we had the last available table! I took the complete breakfast and it was amazing! Freshly made egg, the cheese, the jams! I recommend this place also for the kindness of the staff. For sure we will came again! Thanks for the wonderful experience

My friends and I want there on Sunday for our last day in Amsterdam. It was just perfect, the owner and the waitress were so friendly and the food was magic. Thanks again for this lovely moment :)

This is a favourite place of mine to meet friends or colleagues for lunch. It is a tiny cafe tucked into a narrow side street in the middle of amsterdam. The menu is simple, tasty and with an emphasis on organic and local.

A posh little nook in centre of Amsterdam, with an unassuming front hiding the finest tea and cake in the city. I had the luxury high tea, which contained enough food to send me into a cake coma. Ask if they have their celeriac and rosemary soup, it was amazing. But as it's all locally grown it may not be... More

This is a great place to unwind from the near hysteria of the surrounding shopping district in the very center of Amsterdam. In an alley of the pedestrian zone this great little shop caters to the connaisseurs of better cakes and snadwiches. Tea is served the way it should be and everything is done with respect for food and a... More
